Severn Trent reveals first contractors for AMP7

Severn Trent has announced the details of the first contractors it intends to use to deliver its c£2 billion investment in its construction projects for AMP7.

The water company, which serves around eight million people across the Midlands, has changed the way that it intends to carry out the work between 2020 and 2025.

It will bring the design work in-house, including the creation of a new specialist design team, and will work with more construction contractors than previously.

The framework has been structured into four defined lots, with Lot 1 representing the capital delivery design and build frameworks and Lots 2, 3 and 4 forming three separate capital delivery build only frameworks.

The successful contractors for the first two lots are:

Lot 1

J. Murphy & Sons
Mott MacDonald Bentley
MWH Treatment
VolkerStevin & Atkins JV

Lot 2

Barhale Limited & Doosan Enpure
Coffey Construction
CPC Civils
GEDA Construction
JN Bentley
Kier Integrated Services
MWH Treatment

Severn Trent capital delivery and commercial director Helen Miles said: “Getting fast-track status from Ofwat means that we’ve been able to make a really early start on our planning for AMP7.

“We now have 12 months where we can define the key projects we need to deliver for our customers, which we can do alongside our new construction partners. We are delighted we now have our partners in place for lots 1 and 2, and this is a really exciting time for us as we look at new, more efficient ways to invest for the future to make our services even better.”

As one of seven delivery partners for Lot 1, Amey – which has worked for Severn Trent for over 20 years delivering clean water mains renewals, sewer maintenance and the installation and refurbishment of pumping stations – will be responsible for the design and build of water and wastewater assets above and below ground.

Amey chief executive Andy Milner said: “We’re delighted to have secured a place on the capital delivery framework and we look forward to playing an integral part in delivering Severn Trent’s vision for AMP7. Ensuring an excellent customer experience, protecting the local environment and supporting the community in which we work is at the heart of the work we do, and is an ethos we share with Severn Trent.”
